Extended Abstract

Magnesium alloys are unique materials because tensile twinning and de-twinning can be easily activated, which leads to rapid texture and hardening evolution [1]. Here we present a study of the mechanical response of a magnesium alloy (AZ31) when deformed under twinning dominated conditions, i.e. uniaxial compression along prior extrusion axis. In-situ neutron diffraction measurements were carried out using the SMARTS (Spectrometer for Materials Research at Temperature and Stress) instrument at LANSCE (Los Alamos Neutron Science Center) [2].
